    A Jersey City driver is facing attempted homicide charges after authorities say that she ran down and critically injured a woman amid some sort of feud.

    Seynabou Fall was arrested Monday night after her car allegedly mowed down 23-year-old Kymeea Walker at Martin Luther King Drive and Union Street, according to police. She is charged with criminal attempted homicide, aggravated assault and weapons possession.

    Police say that Fall and Walker were arguing just before Fall allegedly got into her car and hit Walker.

    Fall tried to leave afterward, but was pepper-sprayed and attacked by bystanders. She allegedly hit a light pole and was seriously injured in the chaos.

    Both Fall and Walker were taken to Jersey City Medical Center afterward. Family members told NBC 4 New York that Walker suffered broken legs and needed surgery. 

    Video taken by a neighbor above the scene shows Walker motionless on the ground, and a traffic light pole knocked down a few feet from her. A red vehicle is on the sidewalk, wedged against the building.

    Bystanders also pummel a man nearby before police arrive, the video shows. A woman wails over Walker's body as emergency responders attend to her.

    Two men were seen being handcuffed at the scene. At least one was later charged with obstruction for repeatedly crossing police lines.

    A co-worker who asked not to be identified said Walker works at Hudson County Welfare, "and every morning she would greet us 'good morning' as we go through the scan, always had a smile on her face."
